The updated site now provides an industry-specific portal for Association and Meeting Professionals (Association and Meeting Professionals Advancement Portal - www.recerttrack.com/assn-meetings).
The Guide to Association and Meetings Industry Certifications which was launched earlier this year, is also easily accessible and available for free download via the dedicated portal for Association and Meeting Professionals.
Cedric Calhoun, FASAE, CAE, CEO & Founder of RecertTrack commented, “The industry is taking continuing education more seriously and we are now seeing some 20,000 hits a month on the RecertTrack web site. Following feedback from the meetings industry, the new look and feel of the web site now provides the industry with a user-friendly platform to assist certified professionals in keeping their qualifications up-to-date, as well as providing instant access to knowledge and information in one centralised location that will allow them to advance their careers in the sector.”
The Association and Meetings Professionals' Advancement Portal brings global meetings education and industry news together with an e-certification renewal support and tracking solution that will track individual’s continuing education against certification requirements for association, convention, meeting, event and exhibition credentials.
